Xampp install for 64bit machines

Postby rolando51449 » 25. December 2011 01:22

What XAMPP release can I install for my 64-bit machine. Right now no Linux is installed in my machine, but I plan to install DEBIAN (64-bit?). John

You can install the current XAMPP 1.7.7

You will need to install the 32 bit libraries for your LInux distribution as XAMMP/LAMPP's Apache is a 32bit compilation

Good Luck

Good afternoon, is there another way to use xampp on a 64bits distribution? I currently use Mint 12 64Bit .. :D

What do you mean 'another way'? Have you already tried installing XAMPP :?:

32 bit apps only work on 64bit OS's by making the 32 bit binaries available. (it doesn't matter if its Linux or Windows - it has to do with address space) It is my understanding that Mint 64 (after kernel 3.04) has built-in 32 bit support (the libraries are 'hard-linked')

you may need this:
http://community.linuxmint.com/software/view/ia32-libs

Run uname -r in term to get your kernel info

Code: Select all
[jonb@localhost ~]$ uname -r
2.6.41.4-1.fc15.i686.PAE
[jonb@localhost ~]$


Good Luck

You need the ia32 libs for it to work. A simple solution would be installing "wine".

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install wine


You do not need wine in order to use XAMPP, it just installs the needed libs.
This worked for me, although i'm a linux noob :D.

Good luck.

DC80 -

The terms that comes to mind for me is 'a convenient happenstance in your case'. Maybe like changing out your transmission to one with overdrive with the thought to extend your engine life, and discovering you now get better fuel mileage. That's the best analogy I can bring to mind at the moment -

It is true that installing wine will get the 32 bit libraries installed on a 64 Bit Linux distribution, but its a by-product of the process, not its intent.

The 'real reason' that happens to be the case is #10 on this page:
http://wiki.winehq.org/Debunking_Wine_Myths

"THUS" - I stand with my contention that the 'right thing to do' in most cases is to simply install the ia32 libraries, as you get no benefit from Wine unless you plan to use the machine to run Windows apps.

Good Luck with LAMPP.
